[ laughter ] but, now that, you will not get a fine for the flip, but everything else we saw, you got a penalty flag. jumping on the goal post, now that one, do you wish -- looking back are you happy that you did that one? [ laughter ] >> that was a great moment, you know. [ laughter ] >> seth: did you -- in your head, did you think you'd be able to hold on to it? >> for a little bit. >> seth: yeah.

would say, maybe three or four thrusts. you got a penalty flag. you got a fine from the league. >> yes. >> seth: and there's actually a "key & peele," a fantastic sketch show, they have a sketch about how many thrusts is legal. and, you scored a touchdown later this year, and you tried to bring the thrusts down. what would you say you did the second time? >> i did two thrusts. >> seth: two thrusts. [ laughter ] but you still got a flag. >> i still got a flag. >> seth: so what -- has the league reached out to you to let you know what the thrust limit is?

1915 to the present day. >> seth: it's a fantastic book and it draws a lot from what makes vanity fair great and as the editor of vanity fair you recently wrote a letter in an issue, which was about your long history with donald trump. >> right. >> seth: you have a long contentious relationship with him. >> i do. [ laughter ] >> seth: when did you first cross paths with him? >> more than 30 years ago and i had done a long story on him for gq magazine and in the course of the story there was a lot of the things he didn't like about it when it was published and one of which was the fact that i noticed he had very small hands. they're very neatly groomed, though. [ laughter ] >> seth: the first person that noticed it! >> neatly groomed, thought, yes. so we used this in spy magazine in the 1980s and we called him -- we came up with these funny for people and we called him a short fingered vulgarian and spy and that drove him a little crazy but then for some reason a year ago, april, he sent me a tear sheet from an ad, less than 30 years old for the
art of the deal and it's got a picture of him on it and he circles his hands in gold sharpie and he sent to me and says "see not so short." so i take a card, i staple it to the top and i write "actually quite short" and sent it back by return mail and i wrote about this in the magazine and somehow it got picked up during the campaign and it's part of the -- >> seth: it was the reason marco rubio started calling it out. >> yeah, i'm not proud of this, by the way. >> seth: no, it's all right, but are you -- the new york times just recently printed all the people he has tweeted negative things about since he announced, you're in there a bunch. >> i was an early tweeter. >> seth: you were -- yeah, he's attacked you often. is that something --does it hurt your feelings or is it a badge of pride for you? >> it hurt my feelings a bit in the beginning but then he realized after a year and a half he's assaulted everybody, but he called me sloppy, grumpy, dosey, dopey, sleepy and sissy. >> seth: oh wow! >> so it's like a 7 dwarves kind
of situation. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, that's almost all of them. yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: and you have -- >> yeah. >> seth: but with that, you have known him all of this time, you know what he was, you obviously made these observations about him. with that said, are you surprised where this campaign has gone? did you think it would get this negative based on where it started? >> well back in the day, he was sort of like someone at a golf club that was sort of interesting at the end of a game and he was drinking a little too much and telling stories and sort of amusing and entertaining and something, whatever the donald trump we have today, this has been fermenting for a long time clearly because they didn't recognize him during this campaign, there was a much uglier version of the person i saw. >> seth: because despite -- >> the original version was not that attractive to begin with. >> seth: yes, but this is interesting because i didn't realize this to be true.

>> he invited me to two. i went to the one because it was quite easy, two miles, the one with marla maples it was in an afternoon at the plaza hotel, i could get there by cab. i was in and out in an hour and a half, it was like going to a watch lunch -- >> seth: uh-huh, i feel like you're making a big deal of how little you were at the wedding. [ laughter ] >> i think i -- i wanted to be respectful. he invited us to one in florida recently and i thought if i went my name might get in the papers but my friends would never speak to me again but i really wanted to see that one. >> seth: doesn't that speak to, obviously so you have this -- you know you were at lagerheads with him. and then yet he still invites you to his wedding. doesn't that speak to the fact that when this is all over, he's going to feel like he can just go back to having the same relationships. >> no, we didn't have a relationship, i became the editor of vanity fair and it was useful to him to try to win he back. >> seth: gotcha. i see. >> and i wrote recently about the fact that we took him as a novelty guest and the way this correspondents dinner, news organization bring novelty guests as their guest, so i
brought him as my novelty guest in 1993 and i hadn't seen him there again until that famous night when you hosted. >> seth: 2011. you were sitting very close to him because you're in the shot when it cuts to him not enjoying the president's -- >> right, one minute he -- he was sitting there stony as the president --just very a beautifully -- and he was just sitting stony-faced like an easter island statue. everybody else at the table was laughing which must have made it a hundred times worse. >> seth: now i have to ask, with your proximity to him was it more interesting to watch people tell jokes about him or did you find yourself just watching him listening to jokes? >> i was like ping ponging, just watching back and forth. >> seth: yeah. >> you'd say something and watch his reaction. his reaction never changed, it was like a hood ornament.

one was adem kashawgie, a famous arms dealer of the day and the other was donald trump. we couldn't believe our good fortune. [ laughter ] >> seth: so, he was endorsing. so for a man -- >> a 13 cent check. >> seth: yeah, so he either is a billionaire because -- >> you have to respect that in a certain way. >> seth: i do have to respect his value of money but it does make me think he's maybe not quite as rich as he thinks he is.

i've seen what can happen as the result of hate. my son matt was murdered in laramie, wyoming, in 1998. he was befriended by two men in a bar who pretended to be gay. they offered him a ride home, and when he was in their car, they robbed him and beat him.
they drove matt out to the prairie and tied him to a split-rail fence, then beat him some more and left him for dead. in the aftermath of matt's death,
my family saw the best of america in the love and support we were shown. so when i see the hate that donald trump has brought to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. ahh, i don't know what i said, uhh, i don't remember. he's a mexican. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart. i know what can happen as the result of hate, and donald trump should never be our president. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of

[ laughter ] >> seth: oh, you mean someone in the harry potter movie. >> yeah, it's a huge cast so if someone comes out as -- i'm screwed. >> seth: are you saying -- are you talking about all the people in the 80s who got bill cosby tattoos. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah.

just like "oh, man." >> i don't know. >> seth: he had weird things he liked beforehand too. um, i heard that you used to just leave your door open at your apartment. you were a very good friend, you would let friends just crash there. >> yeah i have friends.
